Shabbat Shalom
Do we fully appreciate the gift of our generation? As we approach the 69th anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel, which we celebrate this coming Monday evening at CAS, let us reflect on the miracle in our midst.
Multiple times a day, we pray for a return to Israel and the redemption. In the wake of Holocaust Memorial Day, Yom Hashoah, a day of mourning for the six million, the existence of the modern state of Israel assumes great significance. Imagine if Israel existed in the late 1930s, how different the world might have been? Imagine how different the world would be today, God forbid, if Israel did not exist? Imagine how different, God forbid, our lives would be, our children, our identities and the fate of Jews worldwide without Israel?
I ask these questions not as haunting ones, but to awaken us. All too often, we come together in times of crisis. Looking back over the past few decades, we mobilize for Israel during times of war. There is a call to arms. We drop everything to make Israel a priority. Why wait for a time of distress?
I urge everyone to join us at CAS for our program this Monday evening at 7 PM remembering our brothers and sisters who died fighting for Israel or through terror. We will be hearing from Cheryl Mandell, whose son, Daniel, was killed in the IDF and learning about the One Israel Fund which supports victims of terror's families. We will also be celebrating the gift of Israel. Be there to show your solidarity. Do not take Israel for granted. It is the realization of thousands of years of hopes and prayers. It is our homeland and our heritage.
In this spirit, ask yourself, what else you can do to express your bond with Israel. Join us for our concert on Wednesday night, May 24th in celebration of the reunification of Jerusalem. Consider joining our trip to Israel next November. Come to New York City on June 4th for the Israel Day Parade. Check out our Israel Advocacy Section in the bulletin or be in touch with me or Ben Lanson, our chair, for more specific opportunities. Most of all, stay engaged.
I am reminded of the example of Mickey Marcus, an American-born Army colonel, who assisted Israel in 1948 and became Israel's first modern general. His memory is evoked every year at West Point at the Mickey Marcus Memorial Service. This year, on May 7th, will be special tribute marking the 70th anniversary of the Exodus Saga, "the ship that launched a nation" and a foundational story of the modern state of Israel. Details are in the bulletin. For more information about this service, please be in touch with Sandy Shapiro at
We are truly blessed to live at this time in history. Let us celebrate the gift of Israel and each do our best to continue the vision of Israel as a beacon for humanity and homeland for our people.
Wishing you and your families a Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi Daniel Cohen

Siyum haShas on Yom HaZikaron There is a new special international learning project,, to jointly complete the Talmud within 24 hours on Yom HaZikaron in memory of Israel's fallen soldiers and victims of terror. Individuals can sign up for a whole tractate or a block of pages or even individual daf (and learning can be done on any level, from reading through artscroll to listening to a shiur to iyun). Each participant will receive a name of a fallen soldier or terror victim to learn that daf in their memory on Yom HaZikaron. The learning begins on April 30, 2017 at 8 PM Israel time (1 PM EST) and finishes on May 1, 2017 at 4 PM Israel time (9 am EST). For those outside of Israel, this is a wonderful way to connect with Israel and remember those who have given their lives for our homeland. For more information go to or email
